I made her… She is different, She is unique,

With love I formed in her mother’s womb, I fashioned her with great joy.

I remember, with great pleasure, the day I created her.

Psalm 139:13-16

I love her smile, I love her ways,

I love to hear her laugh,

And the silly things she says and does.

She brings Me great pleasure. This is how I made her.

Psalm 139:17

I made her heart beautiful

I wanted her to search out her heart,

And to learn that it would be Me in her

That would make her beautiful…

And it would be Me in her that would draw friends to her.

1 Peter 3:3-5

I made her in such a way, that she would need Me.

I made her a little more lonesome than she would like to be…

Only because I need for her to lean and depend on Me…

I know her heart, I know if I had not made her like this,

She would go her own chosen way

And forget Me… her Creator.

Psalm 62:5-8

I have given her many good and happy things

Because I love her.

Psalm 84:11, Romans 8:23

Because I love her,

I have seen her broken heart…

And the tears she cried alone.

I have cried with her, and had a broken heart too.

Psalm 56:8

Many times, she has stumbled

And fallen alone

Only because she would not hold My Hand,

So many lessons she’s learned the hard way.

Because she would not listen to My voice…

Isaiah 53:6

So many times I have sat back

And sadly watched her go her merry way alone.

Only to watch her return to My arms, sad and broken.

Isaiah 62:2

I have to reshape her and remold her…

To renew her to what I had planned for her to be.

It has not been easy for her,

Or for Me.

Jeremiah 29:11

I want her to be conformed to My Image…

This is the high goal I have set for her,

Because I love her.

2 Corinthians 2:14

“I have been crucified in CHRIST; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”

Quitters never win! (Pat’s prose challenge)


Quitters never win! When people say winners never quit, it really means not giving up on your ultimate goal, whether it is financial freedom, time freedom or anything you really want in life. If you fall down don’t quit! Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Don’t quit in hard times, get back up, dust yourself off, Just keep praying and going. Because the one who is within you is greater than the one who is in the world.

If given a chance, I would love to go to God’s chosen land. I really want to be blessed to see the places where Jesus walked, preached and ministered.

How many times do I have forgive?


As believers, we will never experience joy-filled, victorious lives unless we are ready to forgive people. This is something we are going to have to do frequently, and according to Matthew 18:21-22, even repeatedly. The Lord tells us plainly in the Bible that if we will not forgive other people for the wrong things they have done against us, then God will not forgive the wrong things we have done against Him. See Matthew 6:14-15.
What kind of condition would we be in if God refused to forgive us? We could not possible have a proper relationship with Him. Everything in our lives would be stopped up. We like to think that we can stay angry with other people and yet go to God and receive forgiveness for our sins. But the Lord tells us in the Bible that this is not so.

Jesus taught us to pray,” And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven ( left, remitted, and let go of the debts, and have given up resentment against) our debtors” Matthew 6:12. God is a God of mercy, and this issue of forgiveness is very important to Him. He tells us repeatedly in His Word that if we want mercy, we have to give mercy.

In Matthew 18:21-22, Peter asked Jesus how many times he had to forgive his brother,” up to seven times?” Jesus” answer was not seven times, but seventy times that many.

I do not know about you, but I am glad God does not put a limit on how many times He will forgive us. How many of us have done the same wrong thing at least seventy times seven, and God has still forgiven us for it? We are willing to keep taking and taking forgiveness from God, but it is amazing how little we want to extend forgiveness to others. We freely accept mercy, yet it is surprising how rigid, legalistic, and merciless we can be toward others, especially if they have wronged us in some way. Yet the Bible says that the debt we owe God is much greater than any debt anyone may owe us.  Let us always remember how great God’s generosity is, especially in the area of forgiveness. Aim to forgive others as quickly, as often, and as generously as God forgives us.

”Sometimes forgiving someone can be very difficult, especially if that person has repeatedly hurt or offended us. Is there someone in your life you are having a hard time forgiving? Remember the gracious gift of God’s forgiveness to you. As you have received forgiveness, you are called to extend forgiveness to others. Ask God to help you forgive as you have been forgiven”

Let’s always pay an  attention to the message of the bible!

Day 4 – A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest


It’s so hard to tell  because there have been seasons where I’ve been really close to people. FB PM’s, Twitter DM’s, Skyping, Call or text every day, share stuffs and everything. I am also close to my family, relatives, and friends and to other people. But I guess if I had to choose based on closeness and how and what I have shared, it’d have to be JESUS CHRIST. He  is my one and only closest best and best friend ever since birth. Mama passed away when I was just a toddler and  He’s the only one who’ve help me,  gave me hope and courage to continue my journey here on earth.  He knows my heart; He knows what’s inside of it. He knows my future and He knows my entire life. He lift me up when I’m feeling down, He was always there for me when I needed HIM and He will always be.  I am happy and blessed that He is in my life.


Now the light has gone away Father God listen to me while I pray.  I adore you, my Holy God, and I love you with all my heart. I thank you for having created me, for having made me a Christian, and for having preserved me this day. Pardon me for my wrongdoings today. If I have done anything good, be pleased to accept it Oh Lord. Protect me while I take my rest and deliver me from all dangers. May your grace be always with me and may your guidance be with my friends, relatives and family. Bless and protect the Philippines and  United States , protect your people all around the world. Our loving and most gracious God, Please bless and guard your Israel, guide and protect  your children who live there. Our God, the life of all who live, the light of all the faithful, the strength of those who labor, I thank you for all the blessings and I humbly ask for your protection and guidance though the coming night. Bring us in safety to the morning hours; through him who died and raised again for us, your Son our Lord and Savior JESUS CHRIST. Amen

THANK YOU LORD!

Life is Good because God is Good


Suffering? that is our own decision. We make our own decisions, yet we blame on God because our hearts are torn. We allow our heart to tear, we allow ourselves to fall. It is not that we love God, it is that He LOVED us. God Loved us enough to take our place, our shame and our guilt.

When life gets tough, God is opening your eyes, to trust him, to love him. We wont understand, but that’s where Faith comes in.

  It’s time to be fashioned by fire and come awake! God is calling you today, are you willing?

       Don’t think ahead and don’t think behind.

”Quiet yourself and hear his voice.”

”Trials are not pleasant, but then again this life is not the life we are meant to enjoy. We are meant to count our blessings though and be thankful that the Lord blesses us so richly” The world we live in is full of broken promises. It is a frightening, ever-changing world that the Bible says is passing away. Nothing in this world is constant. If you have your trust in temporal things like money and possessions, you will realize nothing is certain.The Lord Jesus Christ is faithful. Hebrews 13:8 promises that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday,today and forever.”  You can count on the rock-solid promises of God. When things in this life change, remind yourself that our God does not change. God is faithful to save. God is faithful to provide for us. He is faithful to protect us and hold onto us even when we try to run from Him.

Thank You Heavenly Father!


A Morning is a wonderful blessing, either cloudy or sunny. It stands for hope and thanksgiving. Yes! sunshine dancing on my shoulder, grasses are so  green today no dusts on my feet. Some white petals on the ground so lovely and wonderful.

Dear God,

Thank you for the clouds in the sky, and the rainbows I can see.  Thank you for the green grass and the flowers and the trees.  Thank you, God, for this world and all that you have made for me.  I thank you Good Lord for keeping me through the night and waking me with the morning light. You know, Lord, sometimes when I’m sad I do things that I shouldn’t.  Please forgive me when I do something I know is not right. Father God, bless this voice that let me sing songs of praise to you.  Thank you for helping me to remember to use my voice to say nice things to my family and to all my friends. Bless the people who take care of me, love me and to those who persecute me.  Thank you for watching over all of us today and through the night.  Help me, Lord, to love you more than I have ever loved you before. In my life and in my play be with me throughout my day, Thank you, God, for everything you do for me.  I love you,  Heavenly Father! Amen.
